NRL Immortal's grim forecast for Broncos


//

NRL Immortal Wally Lewis has given a grim outlook for the Brisbane Broncos after Anthony Seibold’s side was given a hiding from the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The clash between the Broncos and Rabbitohs pitted Seibold against former Broncos coach Wayne Bennett and it was Bennett’s men who came out on top in comprehensive fashion.

Speaking to Macquarie Sports Radio, Lewis admitted that the Broncos lost the battle before the two sides even took the park.

“Right from the opening whistle it was pretty evident that Souths were in the right frame of mind and as for the Broncos, they’d almost been beaten in the pre-match hype,” he said.

“The Battle with Bennett, it continues and [Brisbane] will claim it didn’t play any role in their performance but it really did appear as though they had almost been put off by some of the comments and pre-match banter.”

The 38-6 thrashing at the hands of the Rabbitohs leaves the Broncos with an unenviable 1-7 season record, and with halfback Kodi Nikorima heading to the New Zealand Warriors, the club finds itself in a precarious position.

According to Lewis, if the club does not turn its form around in the near future, it could have long-lasting ill-effects.

“It’s always been a club that’s insisted that a happy team is a winning team, that was one of the first lines we were taught at the Broncos,” he said.

“Don’t ever use excuses for a defeat, simply accept them and try to fix them next time around.

“The last couple of months have been a new brand for the Brisbane Broncos, they’ve even been getting a bit of poor support from their fans and a little bit of criticism has been coming their way.

“It’s certainly a new era and if they don’t fix it fairly quickly, it could be a long and painful year which leads to some tough times ahead.”

The Broncos' task gets no easier next week with a date against the in-form Manly Sea Eagles in Round 9.
